Are you certain that the battery is good? Make sure that there's nothing in the car that's drawing additional power, such as leaving the headlights or radio or other accessories on when the engine is not running.

If everything else seems good, then it's possible that the alternator has gone bad. The alternator is what charges the battery while the engine is running, and if the battery isn't charging that could be why it gets weak. Your car is a 2010 car though, still quite new, so it's unlikely that the alternator goes bad this quickly. If your car is still covered under warranty, you might want to take this in for a mechanic to check.

    Yeah, the battery is good and the alternator is as well. That is really last on my list, I prefer to work on my own vehicles so I know it was done right, and I absolutely hate going to the dealership for anything.

Clean out the Idle Control valve. remove the air duct from the aircleaner system. spray directly into the valve opening. it is a small component with 2 small hoses . Sludge build up and oil deposits will dirty the valve. If that does not work you can remove it and spray directly into the 2 holes on the underside of the valve. Clean the air filter or replace it.if that is not it, then it is probably the EGR valve.

SOURCE: Nissan Wont hold a charge

Hi. this is defiantly a slow or major drain that is occurring within this vehicle. Here is a test that you can preform that will help you find this battery drain so you can illuminate this issue.


Using a 12-volt test light, hook one end to the negative battery post the other end to the negative battery cable you just disconnected. The test light will glow or "light" if there is a drain. If the "light or glow" is faint, that is probably normal draw for the clock or computer. If the "light or glow" is bright, then there is a large drain. That should be corrected. Now start removing and replacing the fuses one by one until the light goes out; that one will be the circuit with the drain. Remember to hold in the button in the door jam for the interior lights.

Please rate and god bless:)

SOURCE: 2000 Nissan XTerra Electrical Probs

I was told by a loca mechanic that Nissa has had problems with electrical grounding for some time. Ii had a 1997 Altima that I intened to drive forever but finally gave up at (only) 90,000 miles. It went through 4 alternators in three years. Also a corroded radiator. The mechanic said Nissan has used the engine block as a ground, since cards today don't have the old-fashioned frame rails. Any loosening or other disturbance to that engine block ground will cause electriclaly-charged coolant to flow throughout the system: definition of elctrolysis. I don't if this applies to 2000-and-beyond vehicles, but it did in the 90s. Elsewhere in this section someone posted a ground solution (Maxima) that looks good. These are great vehicles, but if you have one (any make) with a persistent electrical glitch it can be one of the most frustrating and costly problems to fix.

When i start my 96 mustang gt the horn is blowing

PATS does not blow the horn. Pull the horn fuse to see if that stops the draw. Then troubleshoot the horn circuit to see where the power is coming from. You can start at the horn relay. The relay gets a ground signal from the horn switch in the steering wheel. If that signal is constant, the problem is upstream of the relay--perhaps within the steering wheel. Do not remove the steering wheel to troubleshoot without disarming the airbag.

How do I reset the computer on 2001 Mitsubishi after replacing the alternator it is a petrol 4 x 4 a 3litre

Not sure what your meaning of why need to reset the computer, the alternator has nothing to do with a check engine light so if that is the issue with check engine light need to scan vehicle find what code is fix that if what to know how to dead boot computer 1.pull + battery cable leave off 2. Get in vehicle turn lights on yes I know there not going to come on we are draining the capacitors in computer 3. Leave light switch on depress brake several times 4. Insert ignition key turn like cranking vehicle couple times. 5. Turn everything off lights key an reinstall + battery cable start vehicle check engine light should be off. Basically that is a dead boot for computer draining all power for it.

Hyundai Elantra keeps dying despite my electronics being off.

Does the car crank slowly, or the starter clicks when you attempt to start it? If the alternator or voltage regulator is bad, the battery would continue to lose energy and appear to be bad. Alternators need to be fed voltage since they don't have magnets to excite the windings. On my Volvo, sometimes the indicator lights don't come on when I turn the ignition on, before actually cranking the engine. When this happens, I know from experience that the battery won't charge. Do you get any dash lights showing a problem?

You can check the voltage at the battery when the engine is running; it should be well over 12 volts if charging.

If a trunk, glove compartment or interior light is on, that can run the battery down too.

Why is battery draining ford 2002 Taurus SES

Remove negative cable from battery, connect a test light to negative terminal, opposite end off light to negative battery post. ( let sit for 3 to 5 minutes). Then start pulling fuses, when the light goes out that's your bad circuit. God-Bless! Its worth a try.

Take your battery somewhere and have it load tested. If it tests good it has to be your starter. The alternator has to be working or you would have a dead battery all the time. Unless you are putting it on a charger or jumping it.

Okay, so now you know not to pull the PCM fuse. It won't reset the codes, the parts stores read and reset codes with codereaders for free. ANYTIME you CEL comes on, take it there and write down the codes.

In most cars newer than about 2000, this triggers the security shutdown. What about a dead battery? Why doesn't that trigger the lockdown? Because the computer monitors battery strength 24/7 and it knows the difference between sudden loss of power and slow ***** of the battery.

So IF that's what happened—and you should ALWAYS put make, model, engine, and year in any question; there is no one-size-fits-all about this kind of stuff—if that's what happened, someone who can access the deep levels of the PCM will have to unlock it. That means dealer or certified master mechanic shop will full repair equipment including computers.
